Travel Guides & Information
Few countries in the world have more postcard-perfect beaches than Thailand. And while you can find breathtaking tropical paradises all over the country–from Phuket to Koh Tao to Hua Hin–the province of Krabi is home to some of the most spectacular coastlines in Asia. Here, steep limestone cliffs tower over the palm-lined shores and coral reefs, a lush blanket of green and turquoise covering both land and sea.
Thailand is a land of luxury tropical escapes, a place where sea and land are both stunning and part of every beach lover's bucket list. There's much to see and do in Thailand at any time of the year, as places like Bangkok are always vibrant no matter the weather.
Before you book, remember that you'll have the best beach experience in Krabi while visiting between November and May. The monsoon rains and rough sea hit hard after that.
Best Time to Visit Krabi
Krabi is unique in that it doesn't really have a hot season, as temperatures stay between 30 and 34 degrees Celsius year-round. Instead, the seasons here are divided into dry and wet.
Dry season lasts from November to April and attracts the bulk of the tourists. Prices are high, hotels are often full, and you'll bump elbows with many other visitors once you step on the sand. But you'll also get the most sun, very little rain, no clouded skies, and calm seas–perfect for snorkeling, diving, swimming and island hopping.
During the wet season, the opposite is true–prices go down, and in the early mornings, chances are you'll have the beach all to yourself. Rainy season in Krabi is really unpredictable. You could have a long string of days where you'll get a heavy rain shower every afternoon and then nice weather the rest of the time, or experience true Monsoon weather, including heavy non-stop rain, strong winds, and waters that are too dangerous for swimming or kayaking.
